about 4 years ago for a Christmas present to myself. Nice little copter for indoors I think. Then my dog decided she wanted to catch it mid-air and that was that. The copter has never been mine, it is the dogs now. Brought it out tonight as it is too windy to fly outside, and the dog (jack russell) got all excited. The pics of her are afterwards when she was plum tuckered out (a rarity) and of the copter (or what's left) and believe it or not, it does still fly. Just doesn't fly well.
